I've been wiring lately, which, after seemingly hours, still isn't done :x

I've also had a first go at weathering, the chosen subject was a £20 Lima Class 31. I'm pretty happy with it, but the front needs a bit or work.

The layouts going to take a back seat today, I have a competition to enter.

I got some tips of RMWeb, to thin some Railmatch Frame Dirt and paint the side with it, before wiping it off.

What a bargain!

Just got a Lima Class 60 for £30 from my local shop. £30 isn't bad for a class 60, and this ones been fitted with etched grilles, internal engine detailing, and more. It really is to the standard of the Hornby.

It's also got a great name... The Hundred of Hoo.

Well done with your LIMA Class 60 PT, thats the one thing I like about Lima stuff, its robust, cheap and are quite good pullers. They do make a great noise too :D

Well done with your purchase! I do like the name, by the way what livery is it out of interest?

For the past few weeks, I've been building a bridge from Plastikard. It's not quite finished yet, but here's a rough indication of what it will look like:

I've also decided to try my hand a kit building, and after much deliberation, have ordered a Cambrian BAA to try. If I'm successful, I'll order to another five, to make a rake of six. When it comes, I'll do a "How-To."

I'd also like your input into something. I quite fancy a super detail loco, and am considering either a Hornby 60, Hornby 56, or a Bachmann EWS 66. But I can't for the life of me decide. Please help!
